We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing, that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:


1. International Beer Day – Today is International Beer Day. From coast to coast, country-to-country everyone is enjoying their favorite casual drink and uniting under the love of beer.  Raise your glass for a Global Cheers.


2. Unemployment drops – July brought 117,000 jobs to the U.S. work force, dropping the unemployment rate to 9.1% from 9.2%. Whether it’s .1 percent or 5 percent, we’ll take it.


3. Jersey Shore Season 4 – Yes, the Guido filled fun is still alive and well, this time in… Italy. Don’t worry all cast members are still as tan and intoxicated as ever. Long live the fist pump.


4. Obama’s 50th– A few weeks ago we mentioned the drinking habits of our 44th President and yesterday was as good a time as any for Obama to crack one open. He celebrated his 50th birthday with Chris Rock, Tom Hanks, Jay-Z, and Stevie Wonder. Here’s to partying like Barack.


5. Bacardi OakHeart – Bacardi announced their new spiced rum – Bacardi OakHeart which will launch this September. The new rum is a mixture of traditional Bacardi Superior and Bacardi gold with hints of cinnamon and maple.  Rum drinkers rejoice.
